Congratulations to Richard Sapon-White. He is the recipient of a Fulbright award for 2012-13. This award will enable him to take a sabbatical from September 2012 through June 2013. Richard will be teaching library science courses in his area of expertise, cataloging and classification, at the University of Warsaw in Poland. This is Richard's 2nd Fulbright, having received an award in 2004-05 to lecture on cataloging and metadata at the Charles University in Prague during 2004-05.

Special Collections & Archives Research Center’s newest online exhibit, Roger Hayward: Renaissance Man, is now available at http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/specialcollections/omeka/exhibits/show/hayward.
Hayward (1899-1979) is best remembered as a scientific illustrator of great influence, who collaborated for many years with both Linus Pauling and Scientific American magazine. This exhibit recounts Hayward's story through a detailed narrative and more than 450 illustrations. Included among them are two galleries of original pastel drawings created by Hayward for use in The Architecture of Molecules. Most of the pastels presented on the website were not used in the book and are now freely available for the first time. Roger Hayward: Renaissance Man is the seventh website created by the Special Collections & Archives Research Center using the Omeka web publishing platform. The exhibit relies heavily upon materials held in the Roger Hayward Papers, one of the Center's many history of science collections. Much of the work in putting together this exhibit was done by student assistants Will Clark, Regina Pimental, and Christy Turner.
